Previously, we have briefly talked about why should you trade Forex CFDs, U.S. Stocks CFDs and Precious Metals CFDs with Doo Prime. This time, let’s dive into the commodities market. Taking a rewind on the previous quarter of Swap-Free report (Swap Fees Waived Up to USD 800,000 ++ In Q3 2022), you may notice a surge of commodities during Q2 and Q3 of our Swap-Free and Swap Reduction Campaign. Namely the XTI/USD, which is the Crude Oil CFD.
So, why was there a surge of XTI/USD in the previous quarter?
The market is always volatile, hence the existence of constantly changing energy and commodity markets. Especially now, where extreme fluctuations are a norm due to global gas shortages caused by the Russia-Ukraine war and Zero-Covid policy of China, post-lockdown industrial demand, as well as low wind generation in Europe.
Therefore, a price surge of energy and commodities has happened as the consequence of insufficient of oil and gas supplies.

Renewable Energy VS Conventional Commodities – Time To Trade?
Some might suggest replacing oil and gas with non-renewable energy and into sustainable energy such as energy generated by wind, sun and water. The theory is simple but it’s not really the same for execution.
Reasons Oil and Gas Are Still Irreplaceable For Now
- Inconsistent supply due to inconsistent weather
Weather is king when it comes to sustainable power generation. Of course, the solar panels would not stop working when the sun is hidden by a bit of cloud but do expect lower generating efficiency due to limited sunlight. Unlike oil, gas and biomass energy that work through all four seasons of the year, solar panels generally produce less energy in the winter due to shorter days. Plus a solar panel that’s covered in snow cannot absorb light to make electricity. Same case applies to the wind generator, there won’t be 24/7 windy days, hence the energy supply might not meet energy demand.
Let’s say the sun do be bright and shines throughout the day, yes – there is enough energy for your household and even some excess energy for selling them back to the country! However, your excess energy will most likely go in vain as there is a quota for electricity reselling. This means that conventional energy is still needed to an extent, unless you have a solar battery (which comes with its own costs).
- Expensive installation and maintenance cost
Renewable energies are also well-known for their high cost of installation and maintenance. The typical life span of a wind turbine is 20 years, with routine maintenance required every six months whereas the installation costs for solar panels roughly ranged from USD 3,500 t0 USD 35,000 depending on the type and model. Besides, dam construction depends on the government’s planning with the cost of damaging nature and life structures of the local residents.
- Low power output efficiency
If we want to replace oil and gas with renewable energies, the supplies efficiency shall meet the demand. However, wind turbines are 20-40% efficient at converting wind into energy while solar panel efficiency is generally around 15-20%. Converting over 90% of available energy into electricity, hydropower is the most efficient source of electrical energy.
Hence, with all the stated reasons, we can conclude that renewable energies might be one of the solutions to reduce the non-renewable energy consumptions like oil, gas, coal and fossil fuels BUT cannot replace them. At least, not with the current immature technologies and heavy demand in energy supplies from main cities.
Now, what is the relationship between energy and the price surge of other commodities items?
Commodities are found in the majority of goods that end up in the hands of consumers, including tires, tea, ground beef, orange juice, and clothing. The most common commodities include copper, crude oil, wheat, coffee beans, corns and gold.
As the demand for goods and services increases, the price of goods and services rises, and commodities are what will be used to produce those goods and services. To add, USD has contributed the most on the price surge efforts because all are sold in USD.
This explains why our clients favor commodities CFDs. It is to trade commodities as a hedge against inflation especially buying before periods of high inflation.
